Interest rates will also eventually go up from their historic lows. And there are lots of other things you can invest in other than shares.

This is coming from someone who until this year hadn't sold a share in over 11 years.

I would say it is only CLEARLY the best option for people with a LOT of money and at least quite a lot of investment ability.

That's certainly less than 5% of the UK population.

SUPERMARKET WAR


The Supermarket War Continues, are Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons Worth Buying?

At the time of writing Tesco (LON:TSCO) (TSCO.L) is trading at 185.5p after a sharp 1.17% fall on Monday. Is the biggest supermarket in the UK worth buying?

It is still at least an avoid for me. Tesco has opened a compensation scheme for 10,000 shareholders misled by a trading statement in 2014 which overstated the company’s profits. When you think of its wide UK geographical spread, with many huge stores all over, it is the company most at threat from Aldi and Lidl which continue to gain market share relentlessly.

When you are thinking about UK consumer shares a PE of 27.77 is far too high. The supermarket sector is a competitive even cutthroat business where profit margins are tight. There are plenty of people in the UK who cannot even afford to shop at Aldi and rely on foodbanks. There is no dividend yield either.

Sainsbury’s (LON:SBRY) (SBRY.L), a company which I used to be a shareholder of, is trading at 236.2p after a 0.51% rise on Monday. The PE is 10.78 and the dividend yield is 4.32%. Overall it is probably the strongest supermarket on current valuations. I would say at this price if you already hold the share do not sell, there could be a bit of profit here. I would rate it as a hold overall and if it reached the heady heights of 250p you could consider selling then.

Morrisons (LON:MRW) (MRW.L) is trading at 246.3p after a 0.89% fall on Monday. I have plenty of experience in shopping in this store but now mainly shop in Aldi. There are probably plenty of people like me in the north of England. Overall I would say avoid this share the PE is too high at 22.86 and the dividend yield is too low at 2.21%.

So toff supermarket SBRY is OK but seriously all over players will be hurt by the German operators. It's not fun shopping there but it's cheap and always busy.

Boohoo.com Is Overpriced... what other options are there for my money?


Boohoo.com Is Overpriced... what other options are there for my money?

At the time of writing boohoo.com (LON:BOO) (BOO.L) is trading at 253.25p after a 0.9% rise on Monday. Can this fashion upstart be good for my bank balance?

In short I think the answer is no. The PE is now a sky high 114.5, one of the highest I have ever seen on a share. The company made just 24.22 million pounds in 2017 and 12.44 million in 2016. The reason the company is valued so highly is that some analysts think the company will explode with future earnings. However even future earnings predictions are too high anyway. It is far better to focus on the current reality of the company.

There is no dividend yield and I suspect it will be a while, if ever, before the company delivers one. The impact of a higher minimum wage and a BBC watchdog investigation are just two of the headwinds that the company must face. There is not much recent director faith in the business either with no buys in the past year and two big sales, the latest one being on the 12th June 2017 at £2.20 for nearly 25 million pounds worth of shares.

So overall I think the company is a sell. It is priced for perfection at current levels and I don’t think the company is perfect. It's got the potential to sink like a stone, which is why it's my first ever short.

A much more solid alternative is Next (LON:NXT) (NXT.L) which is currently trading at 4333p after a 0.46% fall on Monday. The PE is a reasonable 9.87 with a visible dividend yield of 3.65%. When the special dividend is taken into an account it is yielding over 6%. I would rate it a hold at this price. Dixons Carphone (LON:DC.) (DC..L) is another interesting alternative, a different play on the UK consumer with a 6.83% dividend yield.

I'm talking from experience - my current Spreadbet Leverage probably 20% higher than I like - need to reduce more.

I think it's a good idea to take Spare Cash out of Spreadbet Account when gets to a certain level. Too much Cash encourages Leverage.

I've been thinking about this quite a bit and you're probably right. Also you should get interest on your cash.
